  1. XL700 Replacement Handlebars - OEM or Aftermarket?

    Transalp
    Hi all, A week doesn't go by when I don't end up spending money on the bike! It seems that I may have bent my bars a little bit in an off-road tumble as my hand guards now hit the screen on one side when going full lock. I've been looking at new bars and am struggling to work out what is...
  2. Using RD04 handlebar-switches on RD04. Is it possible?

    Africa Twin
    Sorry! I have asked this before. I try to erase this post :-) Hi Since the RD04 handlebarswitces is impossible to get from new, I wonder if the RD07 switches fits on the RD04. Anyone have tried this? Best Dan
  3. extra long throttle cable

    Africa Twin
    I have 25mm handlebar risers on my @ and have just fitted starbars. Thing is, the bars are a tad longer than standard bars and on full lock the engine revs due to the length of the throttle cables not being enough. I like the new bars and also like the risers, so is there a longer throttle cable...
  4. RD07 Handlebar risers

    Africa Twin
    Hi! I know there is a thread somewhere but i couldn't find it. Which is the maximum height of risers one can add without changing all the cables? And can someone recommend me some? Thanks in advance
  5. Handlebar height

    Dominator / FMX
    Does anyone have a solution to the handlebar height on the RDo2 ? I find mine very low and difficult to use especially when standing on the pegs, i have loosened them and pushed them up a little which is slightly better but causes the engine to race slightly on full lock so not ideal. I like the...

  7. Dommie Handle Bar mounts

    Dominator / FMX
    Does anyone know what size bolts are used, to attach handlebar mounts to the triple clamps. Im looking to buy new mounts, I measured the length of bolt but didnt check bolt diameter, and looking on net, some use M12 bolts but some use M10
  8. Handlebar rubber mounts, can they be replaced?

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi everyone. I have a 96 Dommie that I use for all sorts of travel on and off road. I noticed recently that the bars are moving more in the rubber mounts. Can the rubbers be removed and replaced? I tried tightening the nuts under the top yoke but still they seem to wobble more than before. I...

  10. varadero 125 handlebars

    Varadero
    Hello, New to the forum! I would like to know if the handlebars of a Varadero 125(2001-2006) are the same as the handlebars of a XL650V TA? The bars on my Varadero are bent and I can get a good deal on a TA handlebars.I'm worried that they might be too big and hit the plastics or the tank at...
  11. Mount iPhone to CRF1000L - Anyone know where to get a mount?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, The thin mounting bar on the new AT (above clocks) for the sat nav / phone is proving awkward :( I cant find a mount that grips the 4.5cm circumference bar - theres plenty around for handlebar thickness, but cant seem to find much to accommodate a thinner bar. Anyone solved this one...
  12. Winter muffage

    Africa Twin
    I did a search but found nothing hence..well, this question :) What handlebar muffs are you guys using? Do the fit over the stock hand guards or not? I've an RD04 and tried the 20 quid jobbies from Louis but, alas, they're a bad fit - too tight on the switchgear because of the...
  13. Anyone looking for LED spotlights?

    Transalp
    I have just taken delivery of these, ebay item 291565702825 good strong fittings and very bright. Not fitted them yet but I can't foresee any problem and they shouldn't need a relay at just 15w each. I intend to wire them into the sidelight via a handlebar mounted switch. They look a lot more...

  15. She scrubs up well!

    Transalp
    It's been about 5 months since the Alp has had a decent clean so I thought that I'd give her a treat this afternoon. I spent 2 1/2 to 3 hours cleaning off 5000 miles of crud and low and behold I can now see what the original colour is :). I gave the chain a bit of lube and also fitted some...
  16. Cree led lights

    Transalp
    Guys, Just bought some cheap and cheerful led spotlights and noticed that they have 3 wires, red ,yellow and black. Any idea why I would have 3 wires and is it safer to run them straight from the battery via a fuse and a handlebar switch?? Thanks in advance Alex

  18. Wuld you adam & eve it!

    Dominator / FMX
    Parked the bike this morning at a friends house. As we were talking inside, we heard their 11 yr old niece screaming. We run out and my bike's on its side with her hobbling and screaming. Turns out she tried to climb on it, opposite the sidestand and it fell in her. Dommies are lightweight but...
  19. handlebars

    Varadero
    Been trawling through Ebay using the Ebay search link on this site, and came across some clip on handlebars. Now to me this would be plain silly, I can't ever imagine anyone would want to fit them to an adventure style bike ( but who knows?). It got me thinking though, has anyone changed the...
